Gertie the garden gecko was always so impressed with her own ability to adapt to new situations.

This illustration just makes me happy.

There are many geckos or lizards in my garden, they are very adaptable, and spend a very harried lifetime keeping hidden from my three cats, Daisy, Sneaker, and Tarbaby.
There is also Gertie the garden gecko whom lives in my studio and at different times scares the life out of me as she dashes from one post to another. I have taken her back to the garden several times, but alas just the other day she scampered out from one set of shelves to behind my drawing table. here she is.


  1. This picture makes me happy too! I love the colors!

  2. This concept had crossed my mind, but you have a wonderful solution! Very well done.
